We have had a few adventures in the past couple days that I will pictorially illustrate for you all. Where did I leave off....kayaking was the last post so that means that the next day, we tried to have a chill by the pool, catch some rays day. Turns out it was rainy all morning, but I still had faith and layed out on the beach & read in the rain. (it was still warm though so I'm not totally crazy)
|Proof that there were giant rain drops coming down on me as I painstakingly waited for my friend the sun.|
|Pants' raccoon eyes are way worse than mine|
...and then got into an inner tube with a head lamp on and jumped in the canal! We only have video of it; no pictures...sorry. We went through lots of tunnels (hence the head lamps) and learned some history of that mountain & plantation. (don't ask me to remember it...)We had a really funny guide (Jason) so that made the trip good for a laugh. We did stop for a family photo on the ride up.
|ALOHA from the Spiers! (the guides made us do this...it wasn't our idea)|
In the evening on Friday (new years), we went for dinner at Kalapaki Joes & had the yummy nachos again and then saw some fireworks at Poipu beach. We were home when midnight came around layin' low and playing crib.
|I learned that my camera had a fireworks setting on it - so I had to take lots of photos|
|I've got a lovely buncha coconuts....deedillydee|
|It's quite heavy & has a LOT of protective husks...|
|...which make them difficult to break open. But don't worry: Survivor Man Matt to the rescue!! (he dropped a huge rock on the coconut & it cracked)|
|Getting the coconut out. It didn't smell all that great.We think it may have been bad.|
|But of course they still made me try it!! I only had a small taste & it was sweet but not great.|
|A close up look at the fruit of the coconut.|

|I have a fascination with the holes in the coral. They are just so minuscule & interesting to me.|

Then, we went mini golfing! I think it was a fairly new course so it was really night. Aaaand let's just say its JUST A GAME AND THEREFORE DOESN'T MATTER WHO WON.
And last but not least, we went to this little pizzeria across the street, you may have heard of it before, Pizza Hut? We had some good ol' pizza & pasta that filled our bellies and came home.
That was quite a long post. I must retire to my beddy bed. Tomorrow our plan is to go shop and have dinner in this cute little town just North of here called Kapa'a...they have an ABC store therefore my mom will be thrilled!
Goodnight mes amis :)
